Red is absolutely my favorite color. My vehicle is red. I wanted red headlights, I wanted to paint my rims red & I wanted red tint except my front windshield of course. My mechanic refused to do the headlights & he discouraged me to do the tint stating it's illegal & I will receive a citation if I did that to my vehicle. I have seen vehicles with various colors which included red headlights & tints. I believe he's taking my best interest into account but I want this. He said he can do whatever I want. He just doesn't want me to get into trouble. Not that I don't believe him because I haven't done either, I want a 2nd opinion. Is that true. Please advise. Thanks😐!

Hi there, Yes, this is true. It is indeed illegal to have anything but white or blue headlights. Red is meant to indicate the back of a car. Yellow is for marker lights, including turn signal lights. It is conceivable to find yourself in a situation where someone could believe they are seeing the back of your car leading them to assume you are heading in the opposite direction you are actually traveling. I honestly don't think you will find a mechanic that will do this for you.
If you do get it done, be ready for some tickets and possibly for your car to be towed.
